- fun to drive
- …and I like computers and data!
Negatives – List 3 or more things that you really don’t like about this car.
Truly, I cannot think of any. It is the logical next step in personal transportation that harms the environment less AND is cheaper overall.
Surprise us! Tell us something surprising about this car?
Every time I walk towards it, I smile, even after 2 1/2 years; never happened to me before and I have had lots of new cars.
What car are you interested in next and why?
There are few cars out there that interest me because they are either way more expensive, or have no features that say, “buy me”. If I HAD to buy one I would seriously look at the Hyundai IONIQ 5.
What home charging unit do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
Bosch Power Max 2 – reliable and easy to use. Doesn’t have wireless but my car has enough flexibility and an App so I don’t need another App!
What home electricity supplier & tariff do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
Ontario Hydro (Canada!) – it is OK. We don’t have much, if any, competition here.
What public charging networks do you use? Would you recommend them to others and why?
Haven’t really used any except for fun as we charge at home. We have FAR less to choose from in Ontario compared with the UK.
Who do you insure your EV with? Would you recommend them to others and why?
Aviva – yes, they are very well organized and move fast when needed.
